If you have a lot of MIDI outboard gear or synthesisers, then you need one of these. Roland developed the A-880 in the late eighties so they’re quite old. I have a few of these ‘cos they’re just so reliable. The well laid out buttons easily allow you to select an input and route it to as many outputs as you like. NOTE: It doesn’t support MIDI merge so you can’t select two inputs and rout them to one output.
I have three of these. One is perfect, one has damage on the rear around the MIDI input sockets and one has a damaged left rack ear. Both units are totally functional but were damaged in transit when I originally bought them off eBay many years ago. I have therefore chosen a price for the damaged units that I feel reflects their condition. The last picture shows the damage on the unit with the damaged rack ear. I didn't think photographing the unit with damage to the chassis around the MIDI inputs sockets was worth it, to be honest.
PRICE: £130.00 plus £10.00 p&p to UK mainland. Cost of shipping includes insurance.
DAMAGED UNITS PRICE: £110.00 plus £15.00 p&p to UK mainland. Cost of shipping includes insurance.
The picture below shows the damaged rack ear on one of the units I am selling.
